Pimpernel Took was a Hobbit who was the second daughter of Eglantine and Paladin Took II, as well as the sister of Pearl, Pervinca, and Pippin.


Battle of BywaterEdit

Born in TA 2979, Pimpernel developed the corresponding love for adventure, Elves, and other things. At the age of 11, Pimpernel and her siblings were enslaved by a group of Ruffians that took over the Shire under the law of Lotho Sackville-Baggins, the son of Otho and Lobelia. A month later, she was released by Gandalf the Grey and was among those that participated during the Battle of Bywater against the Ruffians.

Farewell PartyEdit

On September 22, TA 3001, Pimpernel was already twenty-two years old where she attended Bilbo Baggins' 111th Farewell Party. Pimpernel enjoyed the celebration and was a good friend of Frodo Baggins.


A year later, at the time when the War of the Ring started when Sauron was sending spies to search for the One Ring, Pimpernel was one of the Conspirators, the friends of Frodo who knew that he was in an important mission to leave the Shire with Samwise Gamgee, and they assisted him without his knowledge. While was unwilling to accompany Frodo and Sam out of the Shire and stayed behind to keep up the pretense, Pimpernel decided to help look after Bag End to prevent the Sackville-Baggins from taking it. However, when the Nazgûl arrived, Pimpernel woke up at the sound from the Horn-call of Buckland.

War of the RingEdit

After learning that her brother was with Frodo, Merry, and Sam, Pimpernel and her sisters decided to leave the Shire meet up with them in Rivendell, but their efforts came to late when the four already left the House of Elrond with the Fellowship of the Ring. At the time when Radagast the Brown arrived to the Shire to inform Will Whitfoot about the oncoming darkness and evil that was about to come in Middle-earth, Pimpernel and her sisters were among those that joined the Hobbitry-in-arms and left the Shire to travel south to Gondor. Meeting up with the Northern Rangers, led by Halbarad Dúnadan and Maia, Pimpernel and her kin set up camp in Dunharrow and would leave at the first set of dawn to prepare for war against the east. She later fought in the Battle of the Pelennor Fields and was among those that were slain.


After her death, Pimpernel earned herself a mention in the Song of the Mounds of Mundburg. Her body was buried by her father, who honored her as a brave hero for defending the city of Minas Tirith. Sometime after Frodo returned to the Shire, he added her name when he was writing his book The Lord of the Rings.


Pimpernel is a genus of the primrose family and its fruits resemble peppercorns. The name derives from Latin pimpernella meaning "little pepper".
